    Anyone tried Continental Road Attack 3?

    Read a couple good things about them, but haven't seen a review of them here. Anyone run them before?

    Great! I've run ContiMotions, the OEM Metzeler Z8, PilotRoad 4, and Angel GT (not worn out yet) on this bike, so any comparisons to any of those would be easy for me to understand.

    How are they for longevity in a straight-ahead commuter scenario? Touring?

    How are they for handling? Do they like to turn and handle quickly, or are they a slower-turning, slower-handling set?

    It rarely rains where I live or ride, so wet is less important, but when it does rain it's _super_ slick because of all the build-up on the road.

    Any experience with them in super-high temps?

    I use them for commuting and weekend tooling around. Iíve put 3k on them and they hardly look used. Only ridden in light rain but they stick really well. It doesnít get blistering hot here so I canít speak to that. One thing I can say is thst if the pressure in the rear wheel is too low, the bike feels a little like the back wheel is slipping. If I pay attention to the pressure, they feel very stable through corners as fast as I feel like taking them.

    That's how my Angel GT felt yesterday...when it had lost 3/4 or more of its air pressure...

    I went with RoadAttack 3s front and rear. I’ll try to remember to post an update after a while. So far they’re great, but limited time or miles.
